Drinking Wine from the Barrel

I just found this great option for serving wine at your party - perfect for upcoming Halloween parties or the holidays!
Here is a min barrel of Red truck wine - equal to 4 bottles of wine and it lasts 6 weeks after opening. So if you don't drink it all don't worry! and only $30!

an added plus - its eco friendly!

Door Decor

I know how much thought goes into planning a party - the invitations, the food, the decor. You think about the drinks, the guests and of course the setup and breakdown. Lets take it one step further - think first impressions.
As your guests walk towards the door how are you greeting them? I came across Door Decor and they have some great examples to pretty up that front door. Its a way to bring the theme one step further. This is good for your home, a restaurant, country club etc.

For a bridal shower:

First Day of School:

Are you hosting the next book club, your childs first birthday celebration or how about to surprise your neighbor for her birthday. Think layering of your theme. Why not start at the beginning!

Bridesmaids luncheon

I helped my grandmother put together a ladies luncheon for my cousin and her bridesmaids the day before her wedding.
My cousin is very simple but I wanted to incorporate some personal touches.
I did pictures of her growing up along with pictures with her bridesmaids - I added them to the centerpieces. I also did her monogram on stirrers in every water glass.

We had lunch at Season's 52 in Orlando.
I ordered the shrimp salad-it was served like this:

then voila like this:

Art of Marriage

I just love this about marriage:

It rings close to my heart since I just celebrated my anniversary. Thought other to be wed or anyone in love would enjoy.

Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In the art of marriage the little things are the big things...
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through all the years.

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude
of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.

It is speaking words of appreciation
and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humour.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.
It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best.
